2 teenagers killed in crash on Route 123 in Attleboro – WCVB Boston

Two teens were killed in a car crash early Sunday morning after the car they were traveling in made forced contact with something on the side of the road. Their car had slammed into a tree and caused life-threatening injuries. The victims’ names were not immediately released, but the site of the crash quickly became a memorial.

Crews respond to a double fatal crash on South Avenue at West Street in Attleboro, Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022. Attleboro Mayor Paul Heroux said speeding may have been a factor in the crash.

Friends of the victims gathered at the crash site, numb and in disbelief, and cried and hugged each other, trying to make sense of the tragic events. A mother brought her dog, a golden retriever named Molly, to help with the pain the young adults were feeling.

While many in the Edelbroro community continue to grieve, they say they’re thankful for the lifelong memories, wishing they had time to make just a few more, and that they’ll have forever to look back on.

This isn’t the only instance of a deadly crash happening in the area. Terrance Elder, 55, of Stoughton, was killed in a fiery crash in August. Authorities said speed appeared to be a factor in that crash.
